Hey there! I’m Giovanna - I own this awesome place! Having the opportunity to grow Rogue Awakening within the Fairlawn/Akron community is such an honor. I love that I get to share my love of yoga and fitness with the world. I’m excited for YOU to walk through these doors and experience for yourself how it feels to Go Rogue. I hope you’re excited, too. 

Our studio doors our open to everyone in our community - we aren't just saying that! Amazing, unique, diverse people walk through our doors everyday to come enjoy classes, and we love each and every one of them. You can catch me teaching, hanging out at the front desk, and working with personal training clients daily, but where I hope you see me the most is on my mat, next to YOU - challenging my mind and body, trying new things, falling out of poses, and honoring my yoga practice each day by not just talking the talk, but also walking the walk. 

Yoga was not always a passion of mine. In fact, I didn’t even like the first yoga class I took. At all. Maybe it was because I was only 14, but by the end, I couldn’t wait for it to be done. After that class, it took me a while to want to try out yoga again. Then, I moved to Colorado and I fell in love with Power Yoga. Power Yoga is my favorite style of class to take and teach! It’s faster pace and gets the body moving. It’s exactly the kind of yoga I needed in my life! 

My experience with yoga is going to be different from yours though, and that’s 100% okay! That’s why, at Rogue Awakening, we offer a wide variety of classes. Not everyone is going to love Power Yoga like me, and that’s fine! I hope you find your place taking a Deep Stretch class, a Gentle Flow class, or one of the many other styles we offer. There is a place for everyone at Rogue Awakening.
